Senator John Ensign (R-NV) admitted to having had an extra marital affair last year with a married woman who, together with her husband, were "close friends." This is a man who spoke out against marriage equality for homosexuals because he felt that marriage was sacred. So are there any gay bashing Republicans out there who aren't leading secret sex lives on the side?

According to CNN, he is up for reelection in 2012 and has been hanging out in Iowa a little more than would be normal unless he had presidential pretensions.
Ensign is an extremely conservative senator. He's strongly against civil liberties of all types having voted for constitutional bans on flag burning and marriage equality and for increased flexibility for warrantless wire tapping. He's voted against extending hate crime legislation to include homosexuals. And the NAACP rates him as being 93% anti-affirmative action.
Here's to hoping Ensign gets demoted.
